AKRON, OH (WOIO) -

Akron Police were called to the scene of a fatal accident on Manchester Road.  It happened around 2:50 a.m. Sunday.

The Summit County Medical Examiner says the victim is a male but  he has not been identified yet.

The man was driving southbound on Manchester near Wilbeth when he went off the right side of the road, struck a pole and crashed into a building.  The vehicle then caught on fire.

Manchester Road was closed between Wilbeth Road and Flora Avenue while utility crews repaired a pole damaged in the accident.

The road has since re-opened.
